[Audio] Sunrise HWY’s ‘Sunrise Highway’ EP reMixed by Tiger & Woods and Tuff City Kids

 

Sunrise HWY

Tensnake’s vinyl leaning True Romance is one of our favourite labels right now. We’re avid collectors of their 12”s, each one an analog Disco Boogie gem. One such gem was the laid back retro Disco sounds of New York trio Tim Wagner, Nick Chacona and Amy Douglas, A.K.A. Sunrise Highway,’s self-titled début EP, fist seen in May last year. Now calling themselves Sunrise HWY (presumably for legal reasons) they are revisiting the slick release with an accompanying reMix package that sees Tiger & Woods and Tuff City Kids take on some of the EP’s sweetest tunes.

We weren’t able to pick our favourite of the reMixes, so here’s three for you to wrap your listening gear around. the formidable Larry Tiger & David Woods work their analog Disco magic on Some Kinda’ Fool, sounding not unlike a track from Tensnake’s own Glow, the track liberally spreads a pumping synth bassline over cowbell led Disco beats and heavily filtered snatches of the original’s groove. Germany’s Tuff City Kids choose to tackle two of the EP’s tunes; their version of Never Enough is an 808 heavy slice of synthetic House that pairs robotic Electro sounds with spine tingling piano House that works perfectly with Amy’s big diva vocals. Compass Point emerges from Tuff City Kids grasp with a Euro Disco feel, loaded with warm machine beats and spacey keys to compliment the track wicked Disco lick. The whole release is a joyous excursion into synthesizer Disco, B-Boy beats, summertime vibes and pure Boogie brilliance. We can’t wait to get our hands on the black plastic.

[Audio] Tiger & Woods reMix frYars’ ‘Cool Like Me’

 

fryars

How much more can we write about London based ElectroPopper frYars’ sweet new single Cool Like Me? The tune’s been on rotation pretty heavily around these parts for the past month, what more is there to say? Well, now that it’s been reMixes by enigmatic US Disco duo Tiger & Woods I guess we can write a little more.

Grooving along the thin line between the funkier end of House and mirrorball vibing Nu-Disco, the secretive Tiger & Woods really let themselves go to town over the course of this nine minute epic. resting on an irresistible bassline, the reMix gets a little free-form over the top, rocking cut-up vocals, rough piano hook and a left-field arrangement to deliver a track that slowly sucks you in, and onto the dancefloor.

Holy Ghost!’s ‘Hold My Breath’ reMixes

Holy Ghost!

Out today on DFA is Holy Ghost! reMix package for ‘Hold My Breath’, one of our favourite tracks from their storming self-titled début album.

Tiger & Woods deliver a synth Funked up with a touch of Acid and a hypnotic groove. Laden with ‘80’s Electro stabs and clocking in at just under ten minutes the track is almost a meditation on dance. Cosmic Kids’ deep Disco take on the tune is full of ominous analog synths, but keeps the tune at it’s Poppy core amidst all the moody warehouse sounds. To be honest, neither is a patch on the original, but do make a nice compliment.
